Rape as a weapon of war has caused so much suffering that many people packed into a House of Lords Committee Room to hear an update on the campaign from the Prime Minister's Special Representative for the Prevention of Sexual Violence in Conflict, Rt Hon Baroness Anelay DBE. Some had suffered sexual violence in conflict and provided powerful and shocking testimonies. Others shared their personal experiences of growing up where such experiences were common. They explained the tactics they were taught to avoid being raped even from the age of seven years old.
The Youth Achievement Awardees testimonies were again so inspiring and refreshing that those who may have wanted to leave could not pull themselves away. Held in Committee Room 10 of the House of Commons on July 8th, the award programme was hosted by Mr Virendra Sharma MP's office and kindly supported throughout by Lord Nazir Ahmed of Rotherham.
